But if want to take a tour of the brewery, it cost $10., but you get a 12 oz bottle of beer to drink while on the tour.... More

I've done many brewery tour, but Steam Whistle has one of the very best! You get a fascinating insight into the company, the building & the brewing process ... oh, yes, and plenty of samples! Steam Whistle's employees are all very dedicated and enthusiastic about the company they work for. Highly recommended! ... I just wish we could get their... More

I went to the Steam Whistle Brewery with my boyfriend for his birthday. We booked a tour online during the week since we heard that weekends are quite busy. Before beginning the tour each person gets a free sample of the beer (a small glass) however, before beginning the tour each person receives a full sized bottle. During the middle... More

Not your average brewery tour. The history lesson combined with the comedic relief of tour guide (Jules) made the whole experience very fun and relaxing. He was excellent. As was all the staff. For sure will be back! Almost forgot...Love the Beer

We enjoyed our tour. It was inexpensive and included samples of their beer, which was tasty. Our guide was fun and had lots of info to share. It took about 45 minutes to go through the facility. If you're in the area, check it out.

I live only about 40 mins away from steam whistle brewery and am a loyal customer but had never taken the tour. It was my brothers 30th bday and I took him. The staff was all very nice and the tour was pretty cool.

We walked into the Brewery and were instantly struck by the high ceiling and the excellent use of an old historic roundhouse. There were many places to stand or sit and the bar was huge. We enjoyed our sample of the Steam Whistle Beer and then ordered a couple more because it was so good. Cold, tasty, and mild. Interestingly... More

Situated just across the road from the C.N. Tower in the old rail yards. They make their own Pilsner which is usually brewed and sold in the same day. There are 3 lovely young ladies behind the bar serving free samples to give you a taster, then you can buy the beer in draught form to drink there or bottles... More
